In this excellent textbook Tom Cunliffe guides you through all aspects of seamanship ... Exceptionally well designed, with masses of helpful colour illustrations, it is a treasure chest of practical advice. Don't sail without it. A comprehensive and practical guide to all aspects of seamanship, and comes in hardback form, so can take plenty of knocks.
